Interop, Las Vegas, April 2nd, Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader and innovator in networking solutions, today announced the Niagara 5002. The Niagara 5002 is a 1U network appliance that performs: time stamping, de-duplication and flow based/flow-load, load balancing. The de-duplication will eliminate duplicate copies of packets, generated as result of TAP placed at redundant paths. The Niagara 5002 time-stamping capabilities and high resolution come to support performance monitoring tools, event recording and QoS appliances used in datacenters, corporate networks and financial market.

“De-duplication and time-stamping are very specific features that are required for special applications and topologies. Due to the high speed processing and high accuracy requirements, the Niagara 5002 is a perfect solution as it comes as a standalone appliance and can be installed on demand,” stated Ben Askarinam, founder and CEO of Interface Masters Technologies. “Through the addition of round robbing session based load balancing and the ability to look at the passenger packet when packets are tunneled, multiple low bandwidth tools can be connected to a high speed link and share an even load of traffic.”

The Niagara 5002 provides 5.7ns granularity and is meant to run in conjunction with a broad range of applications, including security, performance monitoring, networking forensics, lawful intercept, data center server appliances.

Main Features:

  • Time Stamping at 5.7ns granularity
  • De-duplication at 10Gb rate
  • Session based round robin load balancing
  • Multiple Tunnel handling capabilities
  • 1U dual redundant power supplies


The Niagara 5002 will be presented at the Interop show in Las Vegas, April 1st -3rd at booth #850. The product is in Beta testing and available for evaluation. Production is scheduled for end of Q2 2014.
